There are countless roasted turkey recipes on the web claiming to be the easiest, simplest, or tastiest method out there. More often than not, though, the techniques these time-saving recipes tout don’t pan out. In our test kitchen, we rely on this relatively easy recipe—that doesn’t require a ton of equipment or seasoning, but results in a well-cooked bird with crispy skin. (In other words, we don’t cut any corners that could negatively affect the meat.) For this turkey, cooks simply rub the body down with butter, season it with salt, and roast it atop some celery, carrots, and onions.
